Why Choose Pure Dental Spa For Dental Implants?
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically inserted below the gum line and into the jawbone. They’re biocompatible, allowing them to fuse with the bone over time through a process called osseointegration, just like your natural teeth once were. This allows them to offer a strong and sturdy foundation for your replacement teeth to be attached to. They’re also able to continue supporting the bone structure, keeping the bone from deteriorating over time from not being used.
The 4-Step Dental Implant Process
- Initial Consultation
The initial consultation will give our dentist and oral surgeon an opportunity to examine your mouth, discuss any goals and expectations you have, and go over your medical history. we’ll then be able to outline your treatment timeline and walk you through the process of getting dental implants.
- Dental Implant Surgery
Our board-certified oral surgeon is able to place the implants in-office, so you’ll be able to get the entire process completed under one roof, with the same team you started out with.
- Osseointegration & Abutment Placement
After the implants have been placed, they’ll fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, which will take between three and six months. Then, we’ll call you back in to place the abutments atop each of your implants.
- Attaching the Final Restoration
Lastly, as soon as we receive your final restoration, we’ll call you back into a pure dental spa to attach it to your implants and complete your smile.

Who Dental Implants Can Help
The best way to find out whether dental implants can help you is to schedule a consultation with our team at Pure Dental Spa. We’ll thoroughly examine your mouth, discuss your medical history with you, and determine your oral goals. Based on what you let us know and what we observe, we’ll be able to make treatment recommendations for you. Most patients who are missing one or more teeth are able to receive dental implants in Illinois. However, there are certain situations in which we may suggest a traditional restoration instead. If you’re a candidate, we’ll walk you through how we plan to restore your smile.
Missing One Tooth
For one missing tooth, we’ll place a single dental implant below the gum line and into the jawbone. After it has fused with the bone, we’ll secure an abutment to the top of it. Then, finally, we’ll place a customized dental crown on the implant to fill the gap in your smile.
Missing Multiple Teeth
Instead of needing to alter the structure of your existing teeth by receiving a traditional bridge, we can secure your replacement teeth with two dental implants that we place at either side of the gap in your smile.
Missing All Of Your Teeth
To secure a full denture to your mouth, we can place anywhere from four to eight dental implants along your arch. This will keep it from slipping or shifting in your mouth. We can also secure a partial denture with a specific number of implants, depending on how many teeth you’re missing and their locations within your mouth.
All-On-4 Dental Implants
All-On-4 dental implants allow our team to secure a complete denture to four implants that are strategically inserted into the strongest, thickest areas of your jawbone at an angle. This is a great option for patients who want dental implants, but don’t want to have to undergo bone grafting beforehand, which can take months to heal from.
Understanding The Cost Of Dental Implants
The process of getting dental implants is different for each patient depending on their unique tooth loss situation. We’ll walk you through the cost of your procedure once we’ve determined some cost-defining factors, like how many dental implants you need to have placed, the location of your missing teeth, what type of restoration you need to restore your smile, and whether you require preparatory procedures. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to ask our team.
Maintaining & Caring For Your Dental Implants
Even if you have no natural teeth left in your smile, it doesn’t mean that your days of taking care of your smile are over. Especially if you want your implants to last as long as possible, you’ll need to maintain them. The good news is that maintaining dental implants is basically the same as taking care of real teeth. By implementing simple healthy habits into your lifestyle, you can extend the life of your dental implants and keep smiling with confidence year after year.
